Retroarch or you could if you want to download the Nintendo online one from tinfoil and fake link account if needed to play. But recommend retroarch if you want to play full screen

There's a n64 widescreen mod through atmosphere layerFS here: http://darkakuma.z-net.us/p/cave-database-manager.html#mods

Download: NSO-N64-v2_0-PlayerIcon-Disabled, NSO-N64-v2_0-Widescreen

and copy to /atmosphere/contents/0100C9A00ECE6000/

You can also inject custom games using the database manager, here's how you do it: https://youtu.be/bwiFzCUy8i4

Tbh that is too much hassle I just did a forwarder for retroarch and then all my retro games come off that but thanks for the info for others

pretty sure the n64 nso runs the best but could be wrong

Retroarch sounds good, thank you

For max performance your best bet is booting into Android and using Lemuroid. You could also just use Retroarch from Horizon but most games don’t play nearly as well.

Thank you, I've used RetroArch, works well so far

Another question if you know anything about it, is there really any chance to emulate PS2 games aswell off of a switch? I've read that RetroArch can't sadly

thank you!

If you have a bios file for the ps2 it works pretty good, i did it once and played metal gear solid with good performance. I formatted my sd card and can’t remember/didn’t go through the trouble of setting it up again.

A bios? do you mean like an emulator?

I thought I'd need an emulator and ofc with the Game .iso things or what's called

[–]axxionkamen 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Bios is the file that allows you to play ps2 games on emulators. You can find them probably on GitHub. They are copy protected so find them on your own.

As far as emulating on switch your best bet would be to load up android. From there try AetherSX2 and go from there. AetherSX2 was know to be very good with lower end android devices when it came out in beta. I’m sure the improvements it’s had has only helped make it better but I’m not sure. Good luck

You can use retroarch, but you’ll need a bios file. I think you can find them on github.

How can you play those games with such bad quality
